Free Pattern Giveaway!! Little Ladies

Oh I'm so excited to be announcing this Giveaway!!  For the past few weeks, I've spent countless hours perfecting my next pattern - the Little Ladies!  Although these dolls are based on my original pattern, I've added new elements to the design which I think have added a fresh new look.  I hope you love how they've turned out!   
This pattern is very detailed...  There are step-by-step photos throughout that include options for creating a hand embroidered or painted face, making the hair and sewing a sweet little pair of undies, a pretty sun dress and a pair of Mary Jane shoes. 
 My wonderful Mom has even designed a little cardigan pattern for those of you who'd like to knit one!  Please visit her Etsy shop for details.
These little dolls are the perfect size for cuddling or displaying and measure about 12 inches tall. 
If you'd like to be one of five lucky winners of this pattern, please leave your name and email address in the comments section below, or on my Facebook page under the link to this blog post.  I'll draw the names of the winners on Tuesday, October 15th.  Best of all - winners will receive the pattern for the doll and her outfit AND the little knitted cardigan pattern from my mom!

Best of luck to you all and Happy Thanksgiving to my fellow Canadian friends!  Hope you have a lovely long weekend!

Oh, and one more thing:  I just had to share the photo below - it's a progressive story if you will on the evolution of my doll making.  From left are my very first attempts at creating my own sort of style.  And yes, do feel free to have a good laugh!!  Some of them are downright horrid!  As you look toward the center of the photo, you'll see my very first Little Lady, she's the one with the pink hair and periwinkle dress on, and then on to the right you'll see how my dolls have progressed to the very last one on the right which is the newest Little Lady!
